A Shared Service Approach for Children with Behavioral Disorders.
Clark, Isabelle M.
The Saskatoon Region Shared Service was formed by one urban and three adjoining rural school divisions in Saskatchewan (Canada), to serve a small, widespread population base of special needs students. The Shared Service established the Behavior Adjustment Model to develop a continuum of services for children with social and emotional problems. The program provides videotapes on classroom management for inservice teacher education and offers support services from a behavior consultant, social worker, psychologist, school administrator, or resource teacher. The procedures for receiving these support services are described. Statistical data on the numbers of clients served and types of services are provided. The Shared Service also developed the Social Learning Centre, to meet the needs of students with severe behavioral problems who are unable to cope with, or benefit from, the regular classroom program. The document describes the Centre's service approach, student population, staff, program individualization, length of stay, student integration and reintegration, funding, and volunteer involvement.
